  • North’s Wohlschlegel signs to swim for Campbellsville

    HEBRON ESTATES - Swimming since she was 9-years old, North Bullitt senior Carrie Wohlschlegel got a nice little reward on Monday when she signed to swim for the next four years at Campbellsville University.

    Wohlschlegel was part of the first swim program at North Bullitt when she and one other were part of the overall Bullitt County squad when she was a sophomore. The Bullitt County team, under head coach Laura Flischel, practices with members from all three Bullitt County high schools but they then break down and compete as members for their own school in meets.

  • Five BE seniors looking for sixth straight crown

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - The Bullitt East Lady Chargers will go for an unprecedented sixth straight district volleyball crown this fall and with five experienced seniors, they are the heavy favorites.

    A year ago, Bullitt East reached the semi-finals of the Eighth Region Tournament a week after beating North Bullitt in the district final.

    Everybody is aware that Bullitt East is the favorite, but it is not something that veteran head coach Michelle Gajdik discusses much with her girls.

  • Central at home on Friday

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - Bullitt Central will play at home for the only time in the first half of the season on Friday when the Cougars open their 2009 season against visiting Barren County.

    This will be the first game of the season for the Cougars, but Barren County opened the season last Saturday in the T.J. Sampson Bowl in Glasgow, rolling over Metcalfe County 35-0.

    “They got off to a good start,” Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor said on Monday. “They are disciplined in multiple sets. They will run the quarterback and throw to the running back.

  • Chargers face much tougher foe on Friday

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - Competition on the field will get much tougher for the Bullitt East Chargers on Friday as they travel to Dixie Highway to take on Class A powerhouse Holy Cross.

    Bullitt East opened the season with a 35-7 victory over Paul Dunbar on Saturday, but Holy Cross will be a much tougher foe. The Cougars were 7-5 last year and under first-year head coach Mike Fletcher are expected to be one of the top teams in western Jefferson County.

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - A year after a dream season, the Bullitt East Chargers are hoping to follow the same script to another successful football campaign.

  • Senior-laden Chargers have big plans in '09

    MOUNT WASHINGTON - One thing is for sure for the Bullitt East Chargers as they prepare to start the 2009 soccer season.

    Without a doubt, this will be the oldest team that the program has ever put on the field. Veteran head coach Mike Brangers has 12 seniors on the roster at this point and that number could technically move as high as 15 when the foreign exchange students become eligible soon.

    In fact, the Bullitt East varsity roster has only the 12 seniors and four juniors.

    SHEPHERDSVILLE - The downturn in the economy has done nothing to stop the construction projects in the local schools.

    Two new elementary schools (Roby and Overdale) will open their doors next Tuesday. Three other elementary schools are undergoing major renovations.

    This is just part of the changes students will see as they return to classes.

  • Meijer provides pool assistance

    Calling it a ‘no-brainer’, Denny Simonavice said it was a natural for the Meijer corporation to assist the Bullitt County Parks and Recreation Department after reading about the problem getting swimming pools open for the season.

    Simonavice, store director for the Preston Highway operation, said the $5,000 check to the county was an effort to help get the pools open this summer. He said the company regularly donates to community causes and the Bullitt County situation was a natural.
